Lauren Snodgrass has been promoted to assistant principal at Grain Valley High School (GVHS) beginning with the 2020-2021 school year.
Snodgrass has served as art teacher at Grain Valley High School since the 2009-2010 school year. Snodgrass earned a Bachelor's degree from Drexel University, a Master's degree from Boston University, and a Specialist’s degree from the University of Central Missouri.
GVHS principal, Dr. Jeremy Plowman, sees the assistant principal assignment as the next natural step for her.
"Lauren has been a leader among our staff on initiatives like Standards Based Grading and served on the Building Leadership Team and the transition to a building administrator role should be smooth. She has already gained the trust of our staff," Plowman said.
"Ms. Snodgrass is an accomplished and respected educator and she knows what we are about in Grain Valley. I am confident that the addition of Ms. Snodgrass to our leadership team will be of great benefit to our students and staff,” Grain Valley Schools Superintendent Marc Snow said.
